British Ceramic Tile introduces a modern-day terrazzo design with Conglomerate
With the terrazzo trend influencing Britain's homes, British Ceramic Tile has unveiled a striking new ceramic tile collection - Conglomerate. Visually intriguing, yet highly versatile, Conglomerate brings a sense of natural decoration to walls and floors blending an intricate terrazzo-inspired print with a contemporary grey colour palette.
Available in a white and mid grey 25 x 50cm wall tile, Conglomerate features an added lustre to highlight the surface pattern bringing a gentle shimmer to walls.
When it comes to the floor, the collection offers a coordinating dark grey and white 33 x 33cm tile and a striking 33 x 33cm feature floor tile, all of which make an impact.
With its angular pattern and creative design, the new feature floor tile takes a traditional terrazzo look and turns it on its head for a 21st century adaptation. A pattern featuring a series of strong graphical shapes, the tile combines shades of white and grey into one design for a patterned floor with a difference.
British Ceramic Tile's head of retail marketing and brand, Jayne Adamson, explains:
"It's clear to see that terrazzo designs are in demand, with consumers bringing the look into their homes through floors, walls, cabinets and sanitaryware. These intricate mosaic-inspired designs offer an interesting alternative to granite, marble and concrete for a more handmade, artisan look. "Our new range has two options to appeal to different consumers in store; a more pared back terrazzo and a confident feature tile. They work together beautifully, or can be used individually if customers are looking to focus on a certain area such as a feature floor in a bathroom."
